BUILDING THE BASE, LITERACY: 

Supporting High Quality Education for English Learners in Grades K-5

While in the past, lower elementary teaching for English Learners focused primarily on language development, today we understand that children learning English as a second language simultaneously develop conceptual, analytic, and language practices if provided with the right opportunities to do so. Accordingly, some of the topics to be discussed in this institute include:

  • Why are shifts needed in the education of young English Learners and what these shifts are

  • How to design lessons in three moments to engage K-5 students in active participation that build their autonomy

  • How to enact high challenge, high support lessons that weave conceptual, analytical and language practices seamlessly

  • How to weave lessons to design thematically linked spiraling units of instruction which revisit central practices and build student learning skills and stamina

  • How to work with a variety of texts presented in multiple formats
